Meijer has been affiliated with Andretti Green since the start of the 2007 IndyCar Series season and currently serves as a primary sponsor of Marco Andretti's #26 car at a number of races, including IndyCar events at Mid-Ohio, Kentucky and Chicagoland. Meijer maintains a major associate presence with Andretti at all other events including Sunday's running of the Indy 500.

Meijer is a Grand Rapids, Michigan, based retailer that operates 189 supercenters throughout Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and Kentucky.
